Abstract
In a program conducted by the Canadian Centre for Mine Action Technologies in the summer of 2002, four machines were selected for evaluation of their potential as Mechanically-Assisted Clearance Equipment in humanitarian demining operations. One of these machines did not show for the test. This program continued to develop the test and evaluation protocols originated in the summer of 2000. Inert Mechanical Reproduction Mines were again used as the standardized target test pieces for this program. This report discusses the Mine Hammer, an alternative to traditional chain flails.
